Reporter Barbara Sharp's Experience With Harbaughs

Posted: Updated:

This year's Super Bowl hype revolves around the battle of brothers, John and Jim Harbaugh.

Being called the Superbaugh or HarBowl by some fans-- our Own reporter here at KX Barbara Sharp has ties to the game that reach into the bloodlines.

Jim and John Harbaugh are Barbara's cousins-- and she spent plenty of time with the two growing up in Ohio.

Their father-- Jack coached collegiate for almost two decades-- passing down that knowledge to his boys

She says John and Jim's demeanor on the field is no different then off of it-- opposites of one another.

and they've been that way ever since they were kids.

"They are two completely different personalities as you can kind of tell on the sidelines the way they coach John was always quiet calm and mature even as a child. Jim on the other hand you didn't really want to play with him. He was so rough and so aggressive not mean but just rough and tumble."

To this day she stays in touch with John and Jim-- spending time with them at family functions.

She is excited for both to be experiencing success as Head coaches in the NFL.

But when it comes to the Super Bowl-- she has a tough decision picking between the two.-- and for good reason.

"Come on now there are two words describing that situation. Family Reunion. Would you want to walk up to Jim Harbaugh and be on the record as supporting John and then talk to Jim about that. No, actually I think Jon put it best when he said at this point its not the better coach that will win its the better players. So, actually I won't be cheering. I just want them both to do well. How bout a tie! "

On February 3rd, Barbara says she'll be watching.

Most of family will be going to the game in New Orleans, but Barbara says she hasn't decided yet if she'll be among them.
